OXFORD, Miss. - With five of the top seven returning--including two All-Americans--the Ole Miss men's tennis team is looking forward to the 2012-13 season, which begins this weekend at the Southern Intercollegiates hosted by Georgia in Athens.
The oldest fall college tennis tournament in the nation, the event was originated by former Georgia men's tennis coach Dan Magill in 1968. It will run Friday through Monday, Sept. 7-10, with as many as three singles divisions and two doubles divisions and a champion to be named in each.
The 2012 tournament will feature participants from 24 schools, including SEC members Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt and ACC members Clemson and Georgia Tech.
"It's a great opportunity for the guys to play a lot of matches," associate head coach Toby Hansson said. "That's the main objective with this first tournament, to see where we are and give us something to work towards and build on for the rest of the season."
The only returning member not competing this weekend is last year's SEC Freshman of the Year, Nik Scholtz. Scholtz leaves Saturday for Montreal, Canada where he will be participating in Davis Cup for his home country of South Africa. OleMissSports.com will have a story on Scholtz next week.
